Background

John’s international trademark and copyright practice includes clearance, prosecution, licensing, strategic counselling, and enforcement.  John works with a wide range of clients, from tech startups and local breweries, to global multi-billion dollar pharmaceutical and consumer electronics companies.  This diverse practice has given John excellent experience working on all manners of budgets and objectives.

John also does extensive pro bono work for a variety of charities and non-profits, and serves as a Trustee Associate for the Nativity School of Worcester.

Prior to joining Fish, John worked as a Trademark Fellow for a Fortune 15 company and held a variety of legal support positions at other law firms.

In his spare time, John enjoys traveling to new cities to visit their local breweries – especially if he can also cheer on the Cleveland Indians or New York Giants while he is there. He is also strategizing how to make corn-hole an official Olympic sport.
